My family and I loved this recipe. I generally use the typical cheese, soup, noodles and turkey recipe. This was so much better. I added celery at the suggestion of one of the reviews, 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese and used garlic salt instead of plain salt. Also, I was out of bread crumbs so I used stuffing mix. The combination was wonderful and we will definitely have it many times in the future.

I added chopped celery, like my mom would have done. It keeps the noodles moist and adds good flavor.

This is a fantastic, easy recipe. Even without cream, it's very rich tasting (there is a decent amount of butter!) and it's an excellent way to use up the extra turkey. Everyone in my family loved it! We've tried other Tetrazzini recipes, but this one is simple and excellent. Highly recommended!

Most tetrazzine's have milk or cream. This one does not.??? I will compare to other recipes and make my own version.
